Starbucks is testing out a cashless store in downtown Seattle.
The coffee chain, often lauded in the technology industry for innovations in mobile payments, is no longer accepting cash at its location in the Russell Investments Center. Starbucks will accept credit cards or payments through the company’s mobile app, just not cash.
A barista at the location said Starbucks is testing the concept for at least two weeks. Starbucks has yet to a respond to a request for more information.
